FY 2008 Gulf of Mexico Alliance Governors' Action Plan Implementation: The purpose of this notice is to solicit proposals for cooperative agreements between NOAA and partnering entities from Gulf of Mexico States to implement Action Blueprint Steps identified in the Gulf of Mexico Alliance Governors' Action Plan. Proposals submitted in response to this announcement should contribute to the beneficial public outcomes associated with the five priority issues in the NOAA Plan: Water quality for healthy beaches and shellfish beds; wetland and coastal conservation and restoration; environmental education; identification and characterization of Gulf habitats; and nutrient reduction as well as Coastal Community Resiliency, a priority issue elevated by the Alliance since release of the Plan. Beneficial public outcomes can include (among many other possibilities) reduced social disruptions and storm resilient economies; improved fisheries production, increased storm damages reduction from wetland buffers, and improved water quality with the natural filtering from wetland processes; less harmful algal blooms and beach closures. This competition is focused on the geography of the Gulf of Mexico in response to NOAAs development of the Gulf of Mexico Alliance implementation plan and subsequent congressional appropriations. The program priorities for this opportunity support NOAAs mission support goal of: Weather and Water Serve Society's Needs for Weather and Water Information.
